Welcome to the Tuesday meeting of the Coffee Hour here at the Street Prophets group. This is an open thread. In an attempt to inspire our imaginations today, I thought I’d bring up the topic of contemporary art. As can be seen in the photo above, I recently wandered into a contemporary art exhibit at the Portland (Oregon) Art Museum. What follows are some photos from this exhibit.

This is an open thread. Some of today’s questions:

How do you feel about contemporary art?

Since several of those here on Street Prophets are artists: Do you consider yourself a contemporary artist?

What kinds of art you do like best?

What’s for dinner?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
